The crocodile tears of Chris Kapenga

Key senator defends Tesla provision, gives Republicans enough votes to pass state budget.  (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 6/26/2019)

Chris, it all started with your accepting the deal.  (Apparently, no one asked him about what those "several elements" are, as they are not identified in this story.)

As an Assembly colleague pointed out, Kapenga's action doesn 't pass the smell test.
Democratic Rep. Evan Goyke of Milwaukee questioned Kapenga naming his business Integrity Motorsports. 
"Conflict of Interest Motorsports?" said Goyke, who sits on the Legislature's budget committee. 
"If this is above board and if there are no problems, then why not do it in the light of day? Why try to sneak it in? To me, where there’s smoke, there’s fire. To me it's problematic and I hope he doesn’t get away with it."
